The article suggests ways on improving medical services for children and those needing urgent medical attention in Great Britain. The quality of service given to ill children, whether their first point of care is an ambulance service, a walk-in center or an emergency department should be the same. While, clinically based standards covering all aspects of patient's journey should be clearly established. All National Health Service facilities must have a lead clinician for children's care.
